Using NotifyLink

 

The topics that follow provide information on using NotifyLink to synchronize email and PIM items between your device and your user account on a mail/PIM server.

      The NotifyLink for BlackBerry device application communicates with the NotifyLink Enterprise Server to synchronize email to and from your collaboration suite server. 

      The NotifyLink Enterprise Server synchronizes collaboration suite PIM items (calendar events, contacts, and tasks) to your BlackBerry’s native Calendar, Contacts, and Tasks applications.

 

NotifyLink Menus

Menus for devices running BlackBerry operating system version 6.0 or greater will look slightly different than on devices with older OS versions.  Menus appear as pop-ups with icons as well as text.
